Relaxing Weekend in Lake Okeechobee, Florida’s Inland Sea
On the last weekend of December 2018, we decided to spend a weekend in Okeechobee, Florida. Also, this would be a great opportunity to make sure trailer and truck were ready for my seven-week-long trip to the West. This week I finally got around to releasing that video.
For many years I had been intrigued about Florida’s inland sea, Lake Okeechobee. It wasn’t until we bought Minitini, the Trailer in 2014 that we decided one day to go see it, as part of a longer trip to Orlando, Florida.
This time we decided to spend some time in the small town which is the lake’s namesake. We opted for the KOA, as they are usually well maintained and are easy to book with the mobile app. This was one of those types of RV parks, which kind I don’t like anymore, where your sewer hose sits right next to your neighbor’s picnic table. We got to enjoy the crowded pool and the lounge a little bit before deciding to explore the town a little bit. It was very calm and warm in late December, but it is one of those towns where there isn’t much to do if you don’t own a boat or are into fishing. We still managed to have a good time at the relatively close Seminole Brighton Casino, and even came out ahead.
Overall a nice relaxing weekend and a great shakedown trip before the long trans-continental trip.
